Active studio monitors with 50kHz folded ribbon tweeter and a new crystal membrane 5” woofer powered by Class D amplification and brand new DSP Control
The Unity Audio Mini-Rock DSP is a compact active 2-way near-field studio monitor with the sealed cabinet design, folded ribbon tweeter and a DSP input stage with control.
The Unity Audio Mini-Rock is the smallest model in the range with a cabinet measuring 279mm high, 184mm, 256mm deep (10.98” x 724” x 10.07”). Using a sealed design, the Mini-Rock uses a split dual-chamber cabinet with an aperiodic vent which increases the bass frequency response of small cabinets while retaining the tightness and fast bass reproduction with no phasing issues.
The Mini-Rock uses the same 50kHz folded ribbon tweeter used in the Rock and Boulders paired with a new 150mm (5 ¾”)crystal membrane woofer. This new crystal-shaped membrane uses an inverse aluminium dome glued to a special paper cone using a unique glueing process, creating the necessary sandwich construction. The aluminium foil stiffens the dome, reducing resonances and unwanted colouration as well as maximising power handling and dynamics. Furthermore, the woofer’s voice coil design helps extend the range of each driver by almost an octave.
The drivers are powered by two 180 Watt Class D amplifiers which include DC protection and a custom input/crossover controlled by a volume control on the rear of the cabinet.
The Mini-Rock DSP adds a DSP input stage instead of the analogue input crossover with 24bit/96kHz Burr Brown converters with a huge amount of DSP control and 1/10th dB level control on all channels. Additional controls include Mute, Phase, 8-band parametric EQ, Optional Limiter protection and presets.
The DSP is accessible on Mac or PC via an intuitive GUI and connects via Ethernet. An additional XLR output to feed subwoofers.
